Updates to the Logical Increments Site

We’ve made some small updates to the style of Logical Increments.

If the site looks weird, like if the menu at the top is taking up a ton of space, try clearing your cache and reloading the page.

Hopefully it should be easier to navigate now, especially for new people, and should be easier to use on mobile devices.

We’re also working on more substantial upgrades. We know the site needs to be more mobile friendly, and the main parts table needs some love. (prices automatically up to date, more info displayed, finally??) Coming soon!™

Please email any problems, suggestions, or rants about the new site to contact@logicalincrements.com, or comment below. Thanks!

But the crypto bubble has popped and other market influences are pushing prices down – for now. Prices for GPUs, the core components gobbled up by cryptocurrency miners, have generally come back down to MSRP, and after a supply shortage that drove up prices, RAM is finally sinking to around 2016 levels. Add to that a diverse market of storage options (HDD, SSD and the newer M.2 drives), as well as other supply improvements that are driving down prices, and you have significantly reduced costs for building a PC.

How long will it last? The latest generation of high-end Nvidia GPUs might be experiencing a string of card failures and low supply is nudging prices up. Meanwhile, US tariffs are pushing some manufacturers to raise prices. The time might be right to start building a PC—or begin looking for an upgrade.   

We’ve put together a list of some PC components that provide great value going into the holiday season:
